It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using.

General Password Construction Guidelines

Passwords are used for various purposes. Some of the more common uses include: user level accounts, web accounts, email accounts, screen saver protection, voicemail password, and local router logins. Everyone should be aware of how to select strong passwords.

Poor, weak passwords have the following characteristics:

Strong passwords have the following characteristics:

Passwords should never be written down or stored on-line. Try to create passwords that can be easily remembered. One way to do this is create a password based on a song title, affirmation, or other phrase. For example, the phrase might be: “One way I can remember my password” and the password could be: “Ow1crMp#” or “1Wic?mp/” or some other variation.

Password Protection Standards

Do not use the same password for your accounts as for other non-company access (e.g., personal ISP account, option trading, benefits, etc.). Where possible, don’t use the same password for various access needs. Do not share your passwords with anyone, including administrative assistants or secretaries. All passwords are to be treated as sensitive, confidential information.

Here is a list of “Do Not’s”:

If someone demands a password, refer them to this document or have them call someone in the Information Technology (IT).

Do not use the “Remember Password” feature of applications (e.g., Outlook, Internet Explorer, and Instant Messenger). Again, do not write passwords down and store them anywhere in your office.

Do not store passwords in a file on ANY computer system (including Palm Pilots or similar devices) without encryption.

Change passwords at least once every six months (except system-level passwords which must be changed quarterly). The recommended change interval is every four months.

If an account or password is suspected to have been compromised, report the incident to IT and change all passwords.
